Thank you so much for your support Amazon addict and the many others who have emailed us. I am pleased to report things are now going very well for WAIFS 2010 and all the emails received and answered each day by the team. Having had a long weekend break to contend with the team got down to coordinating the women with the most pressing problems and they have now been dealt with. Meetings this week have taken place and our Avocat Maitre Camus is preparing a lot of really useful, clear information for everyone who is interested. Dr B has already put some items on the site and as you will see there have been lots of words of support like yours which is most gratefully received. A meeting with the Consiel General was very interesting and now the details given to us are being prepared for the site and the lady who we deal with said in fact nothing like this has ever been done and she is delighted as she for one cannot speak English and does not her self know all the things that are available throughout France only what she can offer in her offices jurisdiction and dept. She was genuinely thrilled that someone was getting things done and is determined to keep us feed when things change or new things are on offer. There is now an email address for anyone who has a problem or would like to know something as yet not on the site or to offer help. Once again thanks you everyone who has offered help and who needs it, rest assured we are doing our best to get things on the site but nothing is going on until it is checked and we are sure it is useful and accurate and there are a lot of exciting things planned soon so keep your eyes on the site www.wordpress. com WAIFS 2010 and if you wish to contact the team the email address is waifs2010@gmail.com

Here's a long shot but I'm giving everything a try... I’m looking for any kind of house sitting/pet sitting or garden sitting assigment in July and August? I'm a language teacher from England living in Cyprus. Like last year I'm planning again to bring my kids to France for French lessons over the very long summer holidays. Last year we stayed in Brittany; this year I'm planning to put them in residential schools for most of the duration. The dates of the kids courses are 11 July to 21 August . However I can be flexible either side of those dates to suit the homeowner. For myself, while they're away studying, I would like to escape from my very busy work schedule at the university where I work and refresh myself with a dose of French language and culture. I’m willing to pay some rent although at a greatly reduced rate than the standard holiday let price. Last year I was very fortunate to get a very reduced rent in Brittany in return for looking after the garden of a small cottage. So, for this summer I'm looking for any opportunity that might me allow me six to eight weeks of rest and recuperation during the school hols. I’m a non-smoking animal lover and have two dogs and three cats myself. I would love to have the company of pets during a stay. Regards, Robert Allison Kyrenia, Cyprus

I'm trying to fill in my tax return online and I am in the Déclarez sans certificat (identifiez-vous) section. I know my Numéro de télédéclarant and my Numéro fiscal. The bit that has me baffled is the Revenu fiscal de référence. I can't work out what this is or where to find it. Does anybody have any idea please. Thank you.

House Hunters International, the hit American property series is looking for expats in Lyon for our next series. We are looking for English-speakers between the ages of 25-50 who have purchased a property in Lyon in the past 2-3 years. We are also looking for local estate agents to appear on the show. Participation in the show is a lot of fun and we also provide a small token of financial appreciation to house hunters and estate agents alike. Please get in touch at househunterscasting@leopardfilms.com with the subject ‘LYON’ and a photo of yourself for more information and we will get right back to you. We look forward to hearing from you!

If you see lots of posts from me, I haven't gone mad but only logged on to Anglo Info to see if the promised Rhone Alpes section had been opened (I was looking for some specific info and now can't even remember what it was) and got excited when I saw there is now a section on LyonNot sure why (I got excited) - unless it means that if I run out of Barry's tea .... somebody might bring me some over back from Ireland ?Dominique

Hello. I have a unique problem. Im moving to the Lyon area next month and wish to Bring my vintage wine collection of around 150 bottles with us. Im a little worried getting it through customs and entering France with this as some are quite expensive french vintages. Has anyone experienced anything similar?
